It reminds me of the author Judith Viorst’s children’s book “Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.” For some reason our hair didn’t come out right despite our prep efforts. The children seem to be on level 5 alert at home with energy, or they are staring at you like you’re speaking martian. We planned it all out, but we couldn’t do all that we initially planned for in our day. Matter of fact ,we were not even close! Our car decided of all days to choose this day to give us trouble. “Oh No,” here comes our toxic co-worker with one more layer of drama or shady comment. Not to mention, we gave several reminders, but the one chore that we asked to be done to make our day a little…
